A Lubbock Grand Jury hears a case again and this time, the decision is different. Tuesday afternoon, the grand jury declined to indict former Children's Protective Services worker, William Stewart for sexual assault. Just two weeks ago, the grand jury indicted the 36-year-old for sexual assault. He was accused of drugging and raping a thirty-year-old woman. Investigators found the drug ketamine in her system.
Grand jury deliberations are confidential so we don't know why jurors declined to indict this time nor do we know why the case was re-presented. CPS fired Stewart back in July after learning about the allegations. No word yet on if he will get his job back.
The same Lubbock County Grand Jury did indict a Lubbock father who reportedly confessed to throwing his toddler across the room. Jimmy Aleman now stands indicted for injury to a child. The two year old boy remains in critical condition at Covenant Medical Center. Assistant District Attorney Tray Hill tells NewsChannel 11 the toddler is in a vegetative state.
The grand jury also indicted Christopher Curtis for burglary of a building and credit card abuse. Curtis is accused of breaking into the safe at the Quality Inn on West Loop 289.
